Activity: Membership typesMembership of network or group

Description of Activity

Our project aims to connect UK-based academics focused on nuclear weapons-related research, teaching and scholarship with practitioners and decision-makers. Both the Scottish and UK Governments have highlighted the necessity for academic expertise and scientific advice to inform their work, not least as it concerns nuclear matters. Academic expertise is crucially needed (i) to inform public debate around nuclear deterrence, proliferation, arms control and disarmament, (ii) to provide policy insight and analysis to decision-makers, (iii) to generate or sustain dialogue as increasing emphasis is placed on track 1.5 and track two diplomacy, and (iv) to facilitate next generation training and education opportunities in the field.
